voted no. one was the home school legal defense association. the hslda, the powerful lobby group around the country whose leader you're about to meet. they had some very strong things to say about the treaty, but the notion was basically this. if it were to pass, they said, the u.n. treaty would somehow let the u.n. mandate how parents of disabled kids in america cared for their children. americans -- among the senators echoing that center is mike lee of utah. keeping them honest, though, when i asked him to specify how this u.n. influence might manifest itself, here's the answer he gave. >> can you name any other u.n. treaty that has forced changes in u.s. law? >> i didn't come prepared to cite supreme court precedent on this point but it's a well -- >> what you're saying is hypothetical. you're using a bunch of hypotheticals saying this is going to force abortion rights for disabled people overseas. i mean, some groups are saying children with glasses are going be taken from their parents. you're using all these very scary hypotheticals. you can't even cite one case where a u.n

they are? how will you get that past syrian air defenses? there is a lot we know, there is growing concern by the hour in the region. because, if the syrians use these kinds of weapons on their own people, catastrophic. but the plume clouds can cross borders. terrorists can get ahold of this material. and it just doesn't get more serious than this. >> bob, you have been looking to how catastrophic these weapons can be. >> anderson, look at it this way. a 122 mm artillery round landing in the city will kill 18 to 20,000 people. >> one round? >> one round. you could take out a city a third of the city in the first couple of hours. this is a highly toxic liquid. it is a persistent a gent and completely deadly. if in fact they mixed the agent, it doesn't do you good to bomb these sites. if they are sitting in cities or near cities, it will have the same amount of damage. if you take the rounds and put it on the arartillery, you can fire it into anywhere that you want. there are all sorts of disaster situations. they are remote, but still a possibility. >> we don't want to speculate too

know precisely where they are? how will you get that bomber aircraft past syrian air defenses? and it's safe to assume that the neighboring countries, israel, turkey, jordan, their intelligence services also working this problem around the clock. there is a lot we know. there is growing concern by the hour, in the region, because if the syrians use these kind of weapons against their own people, catastrophic. but if they also use them, these weapons, the plume clouds, if you will, can cross borders, terrorists could get ahold of this kind of material if it's now out of secure locations and take it across borders into israel, jordan or turkey. it just doesn't get more serious than this. >> bob, you've been looking into how catastrophic these weapons could be. >> anderson, look at it this way, 122-millimeter artillery round with mixed sarin landing in the middle of a city will immediately kill 18,000 to 20,000 people. and that's in the first seconds. >> one round? >> one round. and the dispersion on that could be -- depends on the wind. but you could take out a city like homs. you co
